Every new year comes with new and great expectations of the Samsung Galaxy range of smartphones. Year on year, the numbers keep increasing. After a year since Samsung launched the Galaxy S7, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is just around the corner with great expectations.
Over the years, Samsung’s Galaxy S range of smartphones have come with some features that are unique to Samsung phones.
This time, it’s tipped to feature something you’ve seen on a Samsung Galaxy phone and you might nevea see that on an iPhone too.
There are plenty of rumors surrounding Samsung’s upcoming new flagship smartphones for the first half of 2017 including the leak that shows how powerful and energy-efficient the new handsets will be.
In new wake of rumors, Steve Litchfield of All About Windows Phone got his hands on possible evidence of a very intriguing new feature that may be coming to Samsung’s Galaxy S8, and this is definitely the first we’ve heard of it.
Why is a Galaxy S8 rumor originating on a Windows blog is itself a question. But because the new feature in question mirrors something that Microsoft added to Windows recently — a nifty (in theory) feature called Continuum that allows a Windows phone to connect to a dock and power a desktop experience. And this is what Samsung might bring to the Galaxy S8.
hy is Continuum only nifty in theory? Because it still doesn’t get around the fact that no one wants a Windows experience on their phone. Toss Android into the mix, however, and you might be onto something here.
The slide above was published by All About Windows Phone on Monday, and it was reportedly taken from an internal Samsung presentation that focuses on the upcoming Galaxy S8. As you can plainly see, the slide shows a feature that would allow the Galaxy S8 to connect to a monitor, keyboard and mouse to power a desktop experience of sorts.
A solution like this would allow Galaxy S8 owners to carry a single device that would power both mobile and desktop computing experiences.
If this rumor pans out, Samsung may have a very compelling pair of new Galaxy S smartphones in store for us in the coming months. Until then, all we can do is to wait!
